Weird. Blogger has just changed the way photos are loaded. Which possibly explains why there were problems downloading photos for a lot of bloggers over the last week. It seems ok, other than I had a slight heart attack when the photos first appeared on my post, so large that I could only see 1/4 of the photo, once they all loaded they were at the correct size. Also all photos downloaded on to the post at once. Not what I wanted to do, but not a serious drama, and I can always re-arrange them.
I don't know why but I am not finding anything funny to write about lately either. I am sure that it directly relates to my crafty mojo. When I find my crafty mojo, I can't write anything funny, and vice versa.
Anyway on to the post.
Over the last week I have had time to work on this quilt. I finished the disappearing nine patch, now just have to do a couple of borders. I can complete the first border as I am going to use the chocolate bella solid that I used in the nine patch, but I want to wait until Pure yardage is out to use a print for the outer border.
I can't believe how much my accuracy has improved on this quilt. Just about every single point joins perfectly, woo hoo. Just goes to show that practice makes perfect.
I am finding it really difficult finding ways to display my work for photos. I look through lots of photos where they look fabulous hung on fences, clotheslines, draped over furniture etc. I don't have a clothesline, and my fences are wire and only about 1 metre / 3 feet high , and I don't have any outside furniture that looks good with my quilts (they are too modern). I came up with hanging it over the balustrade at the top of the stairs, I think it looks quite good, but I can only show half of it otherwise it starts to slip over the railing.
Here is the table runner with the multi colour binding, I think it looks pretty good, and I'm glad I used it.
The next few days I am going to concentrate on crocheting some granny squares, as I have left them alone for the last couple of weeks. I have a couple of things that I need to work on, otherwise I am going to be doing it at the last minute.
